About two months later I became pregnant with my first child. The point is, that God answered my prayers. When I decided to give it all to Him and surrender to His will, He gave me the ultimate gift.
Children are a gift from God, no matter how you get them. Whether it is through childbirth, adoption or some other method, life is never the same once they enter it. My kids remind me that with all the wrong that I have done in my life, that I must have done something right to receive such a spectacular gift from God.
I decided to write this post on my sons eighth birthday. For he is my absolute proof of God's existence, and my ultimate proof of God's love.
3 Children are a heritage from the LORD,
offspring a reward from him.
4 Like arrows in the hands of a warrior
are children born in one’s youth.
5 Blessed is the man
whose quiver is full of them.
They will not be put to shame
when they contend with their opponents in court.
